Product description

Auto coverage issues in Ontario can be very obvious or very discreet.  This book is designed to provide a general introduction to insurance coverage and law under the standard Ontario Automobile Policy (OAP 1).

Readers will come to understand the importance of the meaning of terms like automobile, accident, and insured in Ontario's Insurance Act, and how these issues can have an impact on various coverages in the policy,  Readers will also benefit from an overview of the general conditions and exclusions in the policy, common issues pertaining to those provisions, and the circumstances in which they do, and do not, apply.  Dedicated chapters to the mandatory coverages under the OAP 1, such as accident benefits, third party liability, uninsured automobile coverage, and direct compensation for property damage, enable the reader to understand the most common issues pertaining to each type of coverage. Termination of coverage and issues arising during the adjusting of a claim are canvassed as well.
